However, Harriet knows that she can't be a model forever, so she is trying to turn her dreams of being a dress designer into reality.

J.F. Noble, who runs one such chain, tells Harriet he'd be interested in carrying her merchandise if she was willing to create a line of designer-style gowns. Teddy is against the idea, feeling it doesn't play on their strengths and would be bad for the company in the long run. Harriet, however, is determined to make a name for herself, and when Teddy and Cooper won't allow her out of their deal, she begins making gowns for Noble on the sly
